Description:

The study of tools offers multiple possibilities of historical interpretation: it gives us the opportunity to know the stage of development reached by the communities of a civilization; it allows us to reconstruct different activities undertaken by the people of the Eneolithic period with the help of stone tools; gives us the image of the network of contacts and intercommunity exchanges in order to obtain the raw material necessary for the processing of tools; Finally, it reveals an aspect of human relations with the environment in those times. The results of our study were based on lithic objects published in various specialized works, on those pieces in the collection of some museums (Suceava, Vaslui, Botoşani, Iaşi, Huşi, Bârlad) and on the analysis of the pieces resulting from personal research.
